Pacific Crest Trail 2013

I first hiked the Pacific Crest Trail over the course of 1994 and 1996, then I hiked the whole thing in one go in 2013. During the latter hike I kept this website updated as I progressed up the trail. I still have about 45 hours of video to edit, but in the meantime there is a lot for you to look at here. Over the course of the 168 days I wrote 138,734 words and put 13,644 photos on this website.

Spent the day off in Idyllwild today.

Went to the Red Kettle Cafe for breakfast and ran into Marshall and Chief who had just finished breakfast. They sat with me while I ate.

After breakfast I checked out the outdoor store and then went back to the hotel and got my computer. Spent most of the afternoon at the coffeeshop working on this travel website.

In the late afternoon I walked over to the record store that I had seen yesterday. There were all kinds of records there. I found the comedy section and there must have been about five feet of them. I texted my friend Jim in Portland to see if there was anything he was looking for.

"Andrew Dice Clay, The Day the Laughter Died". They didn't have it. But the funny part is that a couple hours later I was listening to the Best Show on WFMU and Tom had mentioned that record. I missed this part of the show since I went to get a pizza before they closed.

Talked to Cora for over an hour on the phone, I think that might be a record since we both are not phone people. I spent the rest of the night trying to get photos in order and my workflow down.
